Like I said elsewhere, this thread is for people to post what needs to be done to compile SDLMAME on a base install of an OS or Linux distro. It is NOT for discussion or support - if you are unable to build SDLMAME with these instructions, please start a new thread!
To kick off, for Fedora 18/19/20:
yum install gcc gcc-c++ SDL-devel libXinerama-devel qt-devel expat-devel fontconfig-devel SDL_ttf SDL_ttf-devel
If you are using a joypad or joystick (including wired USB Xbox 360 controllers), you'll need to make sure those drivers are installed as well:
yum install kernel-modules-extra
Updated Dec, 2013: Updated for Fedora 20 and latest MAME/MESS.
